MASICKA THE YUNG GENAH READY TO EXPLODE AT REGGAE SUMFEST
Genahsyde Records artiste Masicka is one of the most highly anticipated acts for Dancehall Night of The Greatest Reggae Show on Earth, Reggae Sumfest on Friday, July 22, at the Catherine Hall Entertainment Complex, Montego Bay, St James.
He is arguably the top dancehall artiste in Montego Bay, St. James because of his gun-slinging rhymes and ‘rude bwoy’ braggadocio, so he is expected to get a huge ovation at Reggae Sumfest.
“I am looking forward to Sumfest, I’m going to show all the negative people that say young artistes can’t perform that this young artiste can. I’m going to shell it down. Trust me I’ve been fighting for my spot in the business and my time is now I’m going to show them why I’m the young general,” Masicka said.
After pulling out almost 800 patrons for a club show in Toronto two weeks ago, Masicka is one of a new vanguard of artistes that promoters have begun to bank on to fill venues here and overseas.
“Right now, the thing gone mainstream, my fan base is truly international,” he said
Masicka recently landed international collaborations with American R&B artiste Fantasia, and another with hip hop artiste Busta Rhymes and Kick Rocks, who is known for his work with Major Lazer.
The deejay has recorded singles for top producers such as ZJ Chrome, ZJ Liquid, Andrew Blacks, Jordan McClure of Chimney Records and Chase Mills Records. The single, ‘Everything Mi Want’ on the Cure Pain riddim has over 250,000 spins on youtube.
“New videos are coming for ‘Tyler and Puffy Story Part 3’, ‘Fly Ova Dem’ and we shot a video for ‘To Di Top’ in Canada with a lamborghini and a Ferrari,” he said.
He also said that he has new songs to unleash at the ‘Greatest Reggae Show on Earth’.
“People love to hear new material, mi have a couple of surprises for the fans,” Masicka said.
Masicka is booked to appear at this year’s Dream Weekend, plus he has a tour organised for England this Summer.
